Are you ready for a toothpaste that is a cut above other toothpastes? At Melody Dentistry for Kids, we use and recommend Clinpro™ 5000, a prescription toothpaste strengthened for cavity prevention.
Why Is Clinpro 5000 Different?
As a medicated toothpaste, Clinpro 5000 is specifically designed to prevent dental decay by using over four times the amount of fluoride found in normal, store-bought toothpastes. Fluoride is a mineral naturally found in food and water and is used by the body to strengthen the enamel of our teeth. Because Clinpro 5000 uses this mineral in such high quantities, as well as tricalcium phosphate (another mineral found in teeth and saliva used to bond fluoride to the enamel), this toothpaste is able to provide extra protection against cavity causing dental decay.
Why Should I Use Clinpro 5000 for My Child?
If your child is more sensitive to tooth decay, is in the middle of orthodontic treatment or has just received a new dental filling, the added protection provided by Clinpro 5000 toothpaste may be an excellent solution for keeping their smile strong and healthy. Though not suggested for all patients, it is often recommended for children that are at high risk for cavities.
